“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop to look around once in a while you could miss it.” ~ Ferris Bueller (From the movie, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off)
Many years ago as we drove along the North Shore of Oahu, we stopped at one of the empty beaches and watched the mesmerizing surf.
My husband and two sons walked along the edge of the surf and started racing the water as it licked at their feet.
The waves won that race, but more joyful losers have probably never been seen.
Whenever I look at these photos, I reminded of one of the pleasures of travel – escaping the day-to-day distractions and demands of life, and finding time to be completely mindful of the wonder of the moment. Whether it be for an hour or for a day, the sights to see, things to do, and places to visit need to be set aside from time to time. The favorite travel memories are usually never found in the guidebooks.
